Lucas and Walliams drawn to animation

Big ambitions for Little Britain duo

David Walliams and Matt Lucas are working on an animated movie – and a big stage musical.

Lucas told Heat magazine: ‘We've come up with an idea for a Pixar-style feature animation and we've got an idea for a stage musical, which we'd love to do.

‘I can't say yet [what it's about], but honestly, you'll be amazed. It's a really exciting idea.’

The duo have already written a feature-length script for their Little Britain characters, which they are hoping will get picked up by a Hollywood studio.

News of their animated project comes only days after America’s HBO network announced it was going to make a series of animated TV shows based on Ricky Gervais’s podcasts.
